Lifecare Home Solutions…Bringing Trust, Respect and Professionalism Home
Lifecare Home Solutions employs a compassionate staff of qualified caregivers who work with individuals with medical, physical, psychiatric or developmental challenges and find themselves in need of care and support to maximize their quality of life. Licensed in the State of Illinois, we are a Home Services provider and bring a vast array of services to our clients that need guidance, safety and care to remain as independent as possible in the least restrictive setting. The definition of home goes through some evolutions as the situation matures and care needs increase. These services must be respectful of these changing needs and serve the clients in a variety of settings including the family home, shared housing, and independent living centers. The additional guidance and support that is provided can assist the client in extending their stay in the least restrictive environment possible.
Activities of Daily Living may become a burden to loved ones and acceptance of such support keeps them living there longer. There are many types of assistance including:
Meal planning and preparation
Shopping and running errands
Assisting clients in getting to and from appointments
Caring for companion animals
Both live-in and come-and-go services are offered, depending on the client’s needs; come-and-go services can be used to provide companionship and extra support to clients living in facilities or having difficulty in the hospital, in addition to working with clients in their homes.

We work with both families and their decision makers to provide compassionate care and to minimize the risk to the client and their estate. Lifecare Home Solutions caregivers are employees of the company which means the company assumes the employment risks and is responsible for hiring, screening, discipline, supervision, relief care, employment taxes, workers compensation insurance, adherence to State license requirements, Social Security and all other employment matters. Families and their decision makers transfer the risk to the company. Lifecare Home Solutions also works with long-term insurance providers to ensure they receive the documentation required to pay claims for caregiver services.
